Summit Roundtable Podcast: The RMNP CUDL Traverse


In July of 2020, Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell completed a new traverse linking the iconic routes of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. They dubbed it the CUDL Traverse (pronounced “cuddle,” because the pair had to cuddle for warmth over night). In 36 hours, the two climbers coveredĀ 20k feet of vertical, 35 miles, and 65 pitches across 11 classic climbing routes. Listen to the Climbing staff discuss the achievement, as well as the dark side of moving fast in the mountains. Plus, another game of Guess That Gram.
